Dear Reader,

As I was working out today, I suddenly stopped – and felt the urge to do an exercise I hadn’t in a while.

And it turned out to be the best decision I’ve made – – in a very very long time indeed!

As the endorphins FLOWED – as the blood ROARED – as my entire body stretched as it hasn’t been for a while – and as my obliques – and lower abs got the workout of their lives – I felt a sense of peace, calm, and total BLISS come over me.

I believe the “Indian” term for this is nirvana? Not sure, hehe …

This exercise was one I’ve mentioned in my book – and one I’ve often said is one of the best exercises out there – for laypeople – fitness pros – sportspeople – and the military alike.

EVERYONE can – and should do this exercise. This exercise should be an INTEGRAL part of your routine, and I’ve said this many times over.

No, I don’t mean pushups  – or even squats – or even pull-ups. All of those are GREAT, and you DO need to make those a part of your routine, but this exercise doesn’t fit into any of those categories.

It DOES however fit into the category of the “best darn exercise out there” – another one most people choose to ignore – seeing it as an “interesting exercise” but little more than that.

HUGE mistake.

And one I’ve been making too – at least over the past coupla months.

As I bridged out there on the mat today, I lost track of time – and was transported back to “them good ole days” when I was cranking out the 0 Excuses Fitness book – and when Cindy was taking pictures and marveling at the “poses” (according to her) that I was getting into (especially the one handed reverse pushup).

GOOD memories started to FLOW – especially the first time I tried a bridge all those years ago – and could barely touch my nose to the mat.

As for today?

Well, after a break of about two months or so, you’d think it was no big deal for me – and it wasn’t at the end of it – but when I first started, I was amazed to notice my lower back was a little stiff – and that I was NOT slipping into the bridge position as quickly as I did before.

Touching the nose was a bit problematic too when I first did it this morning – but I did what I’ve advised in 0 Excuses Fitness – and soon enough – “muscle memory” returned – and I was off to the races.

Amazingly enough, the front bridge felt like nothing. I didn’t even need a warm up of any sort to slip straight into that position, and as I rocked back and forth, I felt absolutely wonderful.

The bridge, my friend, in all its shapes, forms and guises is mentioned as one of the “big three” exercises in 0 Excuses Fitness – and there is a damned good reason why the “best damned exercise ever” (pardon the French, hehe) incorporates a version of this excellent exercise.

In fact, I would NOT be lying to you to say that I pretty much stopped my workout in the middle to write to you about this – so excited am I about this “discovery”, hehe.

Which of course isn’t  a discovery at all … but it might well be for a lot of you out there that don’t bridge regularly.

There are few better exercises, by the way, for the lower abs and abdomen in general (problem area for most) than the bridge. While you won’t “feel” like you’re burning a shit ton of calories – in fact, I barely broke a sweat (but that’s me – those NOT used to the movement will probably sweat up a storm) today – but incorporate the deep breathing into the stretch, and you’ll quickly burn all that excess lard hanging on to your midsection that you haven’t been able to – for years.

Get on the stick today, my friend. It truly is THAT good!
